Comic book swap

12:16 p.m. — 700 block of South Nova Road, Ormond Beach

Grand theft. Superheroes fight crime — and one local comic book store employee did his part in preventing it.

When a frequent customer brought two comic books up to the register to purchase, the employee noticed something odd. The price tags were much lower than what the comic books should be sold at. One was supposed to cost $1,200 and the other $200, according to a police report; instead, the sleeves stated they cost $12 and $5.

The employee confronted the customer, who then left the store. The customer was then contacted by the store's owner who advised him he was no longer welcome at their store, police report.

Constructive or destructive?

12:29 p.m. — 1400 block of West Granada Blvd., Ormond Beach

Battery. Police arrested a 35-year-old Daytona Beach woman who witnesses in a shopping plaza say they saw hit a man and chase him in her car after he criticized her driving. 

When the reporting officer arrived on the scene, the pair were standing in the corner of the road in the plaza, according to the woman's arrest report. Upon approaching them, the woman walked away toward an Asian restaurant, and the officer spoke with the man, who denied that the woman hit him.

But a witness then told police that he had watched the woman hold the man by his head while repeatedly smacking him in the face and yelling, the report states. The man tried to walk away, but the woman kept chasing him, the witness said, and eventually did so using her car. 

The man and woman both told police that the argument started when he criticized her driving, and that "it escalated from there," the report states. However, neither admitted that the argument got physical and the man sported no visible marks. 

The woman was taken to jail.
